China remain on top of the London 2012 Olympics medal table after Day 12 of the Games, with the United States still close behind and Great Britain in third.

Despite holding four less medals than the USA in total, China remain top of the pile thanks to their superior collection (36) of golds.

Hosts Great Britain were unable to add to their medal tally on Wednesday, but sailors Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark are guaranteed at least silver heading into the final race in the women’s 470 on Friday. They need to beat New Zealand to claim gold at Weymouth and Portland.

Boxer Nicola Adams also secured at least a silver by reaching the final of the women’s flyweight competition with victory over Mary Kom. She takes on three-time world champion Ren Cancan on Thursday.

Elsewhere, Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake both breezed into the 200m final as USA’s Allyson Felix won the Olympic 200m crown, beating Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.
